8 years agofs: hlist UP debug fixup

fs: hlist UP debug fixup

Po-Yu Chuang <ratbert.chuang@gmail.com> noticed that hlist_bl_set_first could
crash on a UP system when LIST_BL_LOCKMASK is 0, because

LIST_BL_BUG_ON(!((unsigned long)h->first & LIST_BL_LOCKMASK));

always evaulates to true.

Fix the expression, and also avoid a dependency between bit spinlock
implementation and list bl code (list code shouldn't know anything
except that bit 0 is set when adding and removing elements). Eventually
if a good use case comes up, we might use this list to store 1 or more
arbitrary bits of data, so it really shouldn't be tied to locking either,
but for now they are helpful for debugging.

As J. R. Okajima noted, force_reval_path passes in the same dentry to
d_revalidate as the one in the nameidata structure (other callers pass in a
child), so the locking breaks. This can oops with a chrooted nfs mount, for
example. Similarly there can be other problems with revalidating a dentry
which is already in nameidata of the path walk.

Daisuke Nishimura [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:43 +0000]
memcg: fix memory migration of shmem swapcache

In the current implementation mem_cgroup_end_migration() decides whether
the page migration has succeeded or not by checking "oldpage->mapping".

But if we are tring to migrate a shmem swapcache, the page->mapping of it
is NULL from the begining, so the check would be invalid.  As a result,
mem_cgroup_end_migration() assumes the migration has succeeded even if
it's not, so "newpage" would be freed while it's not uncharged.

This patch fixes it by passing mem_cgroup_end_migration() the result of
the page migration.

8 years agomemcg: fix deadlock between cpuset and memcg
Daisuke Nishimura [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:41 +0000]
memcg: fix deadlock between cpuset and memcg

Commit b1dd693e ("memcg: avoid deadlock between move charge and
try_charge()") can cause another deadlock about mmap_sem on task migration
if cpuset and memcg are mounted onto the same mount point.

After the commit, cgroup_attach_task() has sequence like:

cgroup_attach_task()
  ss->can_attach()
    cpuset_can_attach()
    mem_cgroup_can_attach()
      down_read(&mmap_sem)        (1)
  ss->attach()
    cpuset_attach()
      mpol_rebind_mm()
        down_write(&mmap_sem)     (2)
        up_write(&mmap_sem)
      cpuset_migrate_mm()
        do_migrate_pages()
          down_read(&mmap_sem)
          up_read(&mmap_sem)
    mem_cgroup_move_task()
      mem_cgroup_clear_mc()
        up_read(&mmap_sem)

We can cause deadlock at (2) because we've already aquire the mmap_sem at (1).

But the commit itself is necessary to fix deadlocks which have existed
before the commit like:

Ex.1)
                move charge             |        try charge
  --------------------------------------+------------------------------
    mem_cgroup_can_attach()             |  down_write(&mmap_sem)
      mc.moving_task = current          |    ..
      mem_cgroup_precharge_mc()         |  __mem_cgroup_try_charge()
        mem_cgroup_count_precharge()    |    prepare_to_wait()
          down_read(&mmap_sem)          |    if (mc.moving_task)
          -> cannot aquire the lock     |    -> true
                                        |      schedule()
                                        |      -> move charge should wake it up

Ex.2)
                move charge             |        try charge
  --------------------------------------+------------------------------
    mem_cgroup_can_attach()             |
      mc.moving_task = current          |
      mem_cgroup_precharge_mc()         |
        mem_cgroup_count_precharge()    |
          down_read(&mmap_sem)          |
          ..                            |
          up_read(&mmap_sem)            |
                                        |  down_write(&mmap_sem)
    mem_cgroup_move_task()              |    ..
      mem_cgroup_move_charge()          |  __mem_cgroup_try_charge()
        down_read(&mmap_sem)            |    prepare_to_wait()
        -> cannot aquire the lock       |    if (mc.moving_task)
                                        |    -> true
                                        |      schedule()
                                        |      -> move charge should wake it up

This patch fixes all of these problems by:
1. revert the commit.
2. To fix the Ex.1, we set mc.moving_task after mem_cgroup_count_precharge()
   has released the mmap_sem.
3. To fix the Ex.2, we use down_read_trylock() instead of down_read() in
   mem_cgroup_move_charge() and, if it has failed to aquire the lock, cancel
   all extra charges, wake up all waiters, and retry trylock.

memcg: fix unit mismatch in memcg oom limit calculation

Adding the number of swap pages to the byte limit of a memory control
group makes no sense.  Convert the pages to bytes before adding them.

The only user of this code is the OOM killer, and the way it is used means
that the error results in a higher OOM badness value.  Since the cgroup
limit is the same for all tasks in the cgroup, the error should have no
practical impact at the moment.

But let's not wait for future or changing users to trip over it.

8 years agomemcg: add lock to synchronize page accounting and migration
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:38 +0000]
memcg: add lock to synchronize page accounting and migration

Introduce a new bit spin lock, PCG_MOVE_LOCK, to synchronize the page
accounting and migration code.  This reworks the locking scheme of
_update_stat() and _move_account() by adding new lock bit PCG_MOVE_LOCK,
which is always taken under IRQ disable.

1. If pages are being migrated from a memcg, then updates to that
   memcg page statistics are protected by grabbing PCG_MOVE_LOCK using
   move_lock_page_cgroup().  In an upcoming commit, memcg dirty page
   accounting will be updating memcg page accounting (specifically: num
   writeback pages) from IRQ context (softirq).  Avoid a deadlocking
   nested spin lock attempt by disabling irq on the local processor when
   grabbing the PCG_MOVE_LOCK.

2. lock for update_page_stat is used only for avoiding race with
   move_account().  So, IRQ awareness of lock_page_cgroup() itself is not
   a problem.  The problem is between mem_cgroup_update_page_stat() and
   mem_cgroup_move_account_page().

Trade-off:
  * Changing lock_page_cgroup() to always disable IRQ (or
    local_bh) has some impacts on performance and I think
    it's bad to disable IRQ when it's not necessary.
  * adding a new lock makes move_account() slower.  Score is
    here.

Performance Impact: moving a 8G anon process.

Before:
real    0m0.792s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.780s

After:
real    0m0.854s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.842s

This score is bad but planned patches for optimization can reduce
this impact.

8 years agomemcg: add page_cgroup flags for dirty page tracking
Greg Thelen [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:35 +0000]
memcg: add page_cgroup flags for dirty page tracking

This patchset provides the ability for each cgroup to have independent
dirty page limits.

Limiting dirty memory is like fixing the max amount of dirty (hard to
reclaim) page cache used by a cgroup.  So, in case of multiple cgroup
writers, they will not be able to consume more than their designated share
of dirty pages and will be forced to perform write-out if they cross that
limit.

The patches are based on a series proposed by Andrea Righi in Mar 2010.

Overview:

- Add page_cgroup flags to record when pages are dirty, in writeback, or nfs
  unstable.

- Extend mem_cgroup to record the total number of pages in each of the
  interesting dirty states (dirty, writeback, unstable_nfs).

- Add dirty parameters similar to the system-wide  /proc/sys/vm/dirty_*
  limits to mem_cgroup.  The mem_cgroup dirty parameters are accessible
  via cgroupfs control files.

- Consider both system and per-memcg dirty limits in page writeback when
  deciding to queue background writeback or block for foreground writeback.

Known shortcomings:

- When a cgroup dirty limit is exceeded, then bdi writeback is employed to
  writeback dirty inodes.  Bdi writeback considers inodes from any cgroup, not
  just inodes contributing dirty pages to the cgroup exceeding its limit.

- When memory.use_hierarchy is set, then dirty limits are disabled.  This is a
  implementation detail.  An enhanced implementation is needed to check the
  chain of parents to ensure that no dirty limit is exceeded.

Performance data:
- A page fault microbenchmark workload was used to measure performance, which
  can be called in read or write mode:
        f = open(foo. $cpu)
        truncate(f, 4096)
        alarm(60)
        while (1) {
                p = mmap(f, 4096)
                if (write)
*p = 1
else
x = *p
                munmap(p)
        }

- The workload was called for several points in the patch series in different
  modes:
  - s_read is a single threaded reader
  - s_write is a single threaded writer
  - p_read is a 16 thread reader, each operating on a different file
  - p_write is a 16 thread writer, each operating on a different file

- Measurements were collected on a 16 core non-numa system using "perf stat
  --repeat 3".  The -a option was used for parallel (p_*) runs.

- All numbers are page fault rate (M/sec).  Higher is better.

- To compare the performance of a kernel without non-memcg compare the first and
  last rows, neither has memcg configured.  The first row does not include any
  of these memcg patches.

- To compare the performance of using memcg dirty limits, compare the baseline
  (2nd row titled "w/ memcg") with the the code and memcg enabled (2nd to last

is frequently used.  We could do batch activate_page() to reduce the lock
contention.  The batched pages will be added into zone list when the pool
is full or page reclaim is trying to drain them.

For example, in a 4 socket 64 CPU system, create a sparse file and 64
processes, processes shared map to the file.  Each process read access the
whole file and then exit.  The process exit will do unmap_vmas() and cause
a lot of activate_page() call.  In such workload, we saw about 58% total
time reduction with below patch.  Other workloads with a lot of
activate_page also benefits a lot too.

I tested some microbenchmarks:
case-anon-cow-rand-mt 0.58%
case-anon-cow-rand -3.30%
case-anon-cow-seq-mt -0.51%
case-anon-cow-seq -5.68%

case-hugetlb -0.59%
case-lru-file-mmap-read-mt -0.54%
case-lru-file-mmap-read 0.61%
case-lru-file-mmap-read-rand -2.24%

case-mmap-pread-seq -69.72%
case-mmap-xread-rand-mt 0.71%
case-mmap-xread-seq-mt 0.38%

The most significent are:
case-lru-file-readtwice -11.69%
case-mmap-pread-rand -15.26%
case-mmap-pread-seq -69.72%

which use activate_page a lot.  others are basically variations because
each run has slightly difference.

mm: fix hugepage migration

2.6.37 added an unmap_and_move_huge_page() for memory failure recovery,
but its anon_vma handling was still based around the 2.6.35 conventions.
Update it to use page_lock_anon_vma, get_anon_vma, page_unlock_anon_vma,
drop_anon_vma in the same way as we're now changing unmap_and_move().

I don't particularly like to propose this for stable when I've not seen
its problems in practice nor tested the solution: but it's clearly out of
synch at present.

8 years agomm: fix migration hangs on anon_vma lock
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:30 +0000]
mm: fix migration hangs on anon_vma lock

Increased usage of page migration in mmotm reveals that the anon_vma
locking in unmap_and_move() has been deficient since 2.6.36 (or even
earlier).  Review at the time of f18194275c39835cb84563500995e0d503a32d9a
("mm: fix hang on anon_vma->root->lock") missed the issue here: the
anon_vma to which we get a reference may already have been freed back to
its slab (it is in use when we check page_mapped, but that can change),
and so its anon_vma->root may be switched at any moment by reuse in
anon_vma_prepare.

Perhaps we could fix that with a get_anon_vma_unless_zero(), but let's
not: just rely on page_lock_anon_vma() to do all the hard thinking for us,
then we don't need any rcu read locking over here.

In removing the rcu_unlock label: since PageAnon is a bit in
page->mapping, it's impossible for a !page->mapping page to be anon; but
insert VM_BUG_ON in case the implementation ever changes.

brk: fix min_brk lower bound computation for COMPAT_BRK

Even if CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK is set in the kernel configuration, it can still
be overriden by randomize_va_space sysctl.

If this is the case, the min_brk computation in sys_brk() implementation
is wrong, as it solely takes into account COMPAT_BRK setting, assuming
that brk start is not randomized.  But that might not be the case if
randomize_va_space sysctl has been set to '2' at the time the binary has
been loaded from disk.

In such case, the check has to be done in a same way as in
!CONFIG_COMPAT_BRK case.

In addition to that, the check for the COMPAT_BRK case introduced back in
a5b4592c ("brk: make sys_brk() honor COMPAT_BRK when computing lower
bound") is slightly wrong -- the lower bound shouldn't be mm->end_code,
but mm->end_data instead, as that's where the legacy applications expect
brk section to start (i.e.  immediately after last global variable).

8 years agomm: migration: use rcu_dereference_protected when dereferencing the radix tree slot...
Mel Gorman [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:21 +0000]
mm: migration: use rcu_dereference_protected when dereferencing the radix tree slot during file page migration

migrate_pages() -> unmap_and_move() only calls rcu_read_lock() for
anonymous pages, as introduced by git commit
989f89c57e6361e7d16fbd9572b5da7d313b073d ("fix rcu_read_lock() in page
migraton").  The point of the RCU protection there is part of getting a
stable reference to anon_vma and is only held for anon pages as file pages
are locked which is sufficient protection against freeing.

However, while a file page's mapping is being migrated, the radix tree is
double checked to ensure it is the expected page.  This uses
radix_tree_deref_slot() -> rcu_dereference() without the RCU lock held
triggering the following warning.

This patch introduces radix_tree_deref_slot_protected() which calls
rcu_dereference_protected().  Users of it must pass in the
mapping->tree_lock that is protecting this dereference.  Holding the tree
lock protects against parallel updaters of the radix tree meaning that
rcu_dereference_protected is allowable.

Andrea Arcangeli [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:19 +0000]
thp: KSM on THP

This makes KSM full operational with THP pages.  Subpages are scanned
while the hugepage is still in place and delivering max cpu performance,
and only if there's a match and we're going to deduplicate memory, the
single hugepages with the subpage match is split.

There will be no false sharing between ksmd and khugepaged.  khugepaged
won't collapse 2m virtual regions with KSM pages inside.  ksmd also should
only split pages when the checksum matches and we're likely to split an

thp: khugepaged: make khugepaged aware about madvise

MADV_HUGEPAGE and MADV_NOHUGEPAGE were fully effective only if run after
mmap and before touching the memory.  While this is enough for most
usages, it's little effort to make madvise more dynamic at runtime on an
existing mapping by making khugepaged aware about madvise.

MADV_HUGEPAGE: register in khugepaged immediately without waiting a page
fault (that may not ever happen if all pages are already mapped and the
"enabled" knob was set to madvise during the initial page faults).

MADV_NOHUGEPAGE: skip vmas marked VM_NOHUGEPAGE in khugepaged to stop
collapsing pages where not needed.

compound_head is running) are buggy because compound_head can return a

Rik van Riel [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 23:47:12 +0000]
thp: disable transparent hugepages by default on small systems

On small systems, the extra memory used by the anti-fragmentation memory
reserve and simply because huge pages are smaller than large pages can
easily outweigh the benefits of less TLB misses.

A less obvious concern is if run on a NUMA machine with asymmetric node
sizes and one of them is very small.  The reserve could make the node
unusable.

In case of the crashdump kernel, OOMs have been observed due to the
anti-fragmentation memory reserve taking up a large fraction of the
crashdump image.

This patch disables transparent hugepages on systems with less than 1GB of
RAM, but the hugepage subsystem is fully initialized so administrators can
enable THP through /sys if desired.

For GRU and EPT, we need gup-fast to set referenced bit too (this is why
it's correct to return 0 when shadow_access_mask is zero, it requires
gup-fast to set the referenced bit).  qemu-kvm access already sets the
young bit in the pte if it isn't zero-copy, if it's zero copy or a shadow
paging EPT minor fault we relay on gup-fast to signal the page is in
use...

We also need to check the young bits on the secondary pagetables for NPT
and not nested shadow mmu as the data may never get accessed again by the
primary pte.

Without this closer accuracy, we'd have to remove the heuristic that
avoids collapsing hugepages in hugepage virtual regions that have not even
a single subpage in use.

->test_young is full backwards compatible with GRU and other usages that
don't have young bits in pagetables set by the hardware and that should
nuke the secondary mmu mappings when ->clear_flush_young runs just like
EPT does.

Removing the heuristic that checks the young bit in
khugepaged/collapse_huge_page completely isn't so bad either probably but
I thought it was worth it and this makes it reliable.

thp: select CONFIG_COMPACTION if TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE enabled

With transparent hugepage support we need compaction for the "defrag"
sysfs controls to be effective.

At the moment THP hangs the system if COMPACTION isn't selected, as
without COMPACTION lumpy reclaim wouldn't be entirely disabled.  So at the
moment it's not orthogonal.  When lumpy will be removed from the VM I can
remove the select COMPACTION in theory, but then 99% of THP users would be
still doing a mistake in disabling compaction, even if the mistake won't
return in fatal runtime but just slightly degraded performance.  So from a
theoretical standpoing forcing the below select is not needed (the
dependency isn't strict nor at compile time nor at runtime) but from a
practical standpoint it is safer.

If anybody really wants THP to run without compaction, it'd be such a
weird setup that editing the Kconfig file to allow it will be surely not a
